A Wasted Day Downloading¶
I managed to waste a day trying to download Episode 5 of Battlestar Galactica. Myself and 6000 other people have patiently been downloading it. You can imagine my frustration when I find the file has been split into small bits inside the rar file. So I join it back together into one file. This time it decides not to play. So i run it through a video error checking package to correct the faults.
Then I sit back ready to watch the conclusion of the cliffhanger. I was greeted with a little graphical intro. I assumed the person who had ripped the file from TV wanted a bit of credit. That didn’t bother me. Then a foriegn voice and 4 teenage girls show up. It’s a porn film. Not that downloading a porn film is bad, but I was quite looking forward to Battlestar Galactica.
Looks like I’m going to have to be patient for the next episode.
